Needs and Desires

There, a glass of water; here, high-end wine

The Little Pink Diary

The little pink diary was inked with the scribbled stories of people she met, experiences she had, things she learned. She wrote like never before, her scribbles were like inspiring stories. The little diary was the answer to “I don’t know what to do in life”.

Everything Affects Everything!

Even though the reviews seemed positive, there was something common in their remarks. They said, “Hannah was a dumb person.” After which I realized that I thought the same thing while watching the series. I believed it was stupid of her to commit silly mistakes and to top it all, make creepy tapes about those incidents. Dumb! Yeah, she was.

The Sin

No, it was not just her mere poised body. It was like a goddess sitting there, some fairy whose aroma, charm, mystery makes you swallow your spit. And your body can feel that saliva going down through your food pipe, giving you shrills, making you want to jump from the highest mountain from where the fountain flows, to being lost in that fog where the god resides.

How bootstrapping can help a startup in a country like India.

Bootstrapping is unique in its own way, it helps you to find and hunt down the right set of talent to work with and it also allows you to find the correct set of partners.

Identity

I am fighting hard to stay in slumber

Soon, I am sure darkness will come

Drag me out of bed, through the avenues

The Tidy Room

The Maleficent Benediction

The human mind is meant to perform within an angstrom of nanoseconds; but think with a deep breath, aren’t we preparing a thing more than a dog’s dinner?
